This weekend has a special feel to it for this time, as I’ve a week of lovely leave off work; well my day job. My plan was to lazy about at home and enjoy the sun….However I will be covering Drive time show on Phoenix FM next week, so its what I call a perfect plan for raining summer week of leave; positivity ay. Among the mix of music today you may still be recovering from the shocker from the 80’s. A one-hit-wonder by an Act called Q Lazarus and their track ‘Goodbye Horses….famous, or infamously used in Silence of the Lambs on the ‘Buffalo Bill’ dance scene;
Twofers this week, took a look at the 2011 Mercury Prize Nominees and in-particular, Elbow, who have been nominated again. So we played ‘Lippy Kids’ & ‘Neat Little Rows’, to wish the band luck.
